Got ourselves a new crazy sheik down here:
The mysterious sheik behind the Australian chapter of Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir has revealed the organisation’s support for military coups and revolutions to overthrow non-Muslim governments worldwide.
Ismail Al Wahwah, who was little known until last month when he was banned from a Hizb ut-Tahrir conference in Indonesia, spoke out on an Arabic radio program that revealed him as the “active member” of the group in Australia.
In an interview on SBS radio last month, he attacked the West’s lack of values and backed the use of suicide bombings in Iraq and Palestine, even if they killed Australians. “I say any occupied people have the responsibility to defend their country,” he told SBS’s Arabic radio program. “The victim should not be asked how he is defending himself.”
Sheik Wahwah is understood to be the unofficial leader of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Australia.
Hizb ut-Tahrir media spokesman Wassim Doureihi claims Sheik Wahwah isn’t the group’s leader. Then again, Wassim’s claims vary depending on who he’s talking to.
